mystified- Constant 16 [treetrunk059]
"Constant 16" is a longform drone piece created using radio signals generated by the Earth, granular synthesis, and a variety of other processes.
Run time 30:30
"Constant" pieces are works of minimal drone that tend to use a "less is more" approach. The idea of these songs is to create the least possible ambient drone material necessary for listening. Mystified created the first "Constant" on Webbed Hand Records ( http://www.webbedhandrecords.com ). Several artists gave the theme their own spin at the TZP Drone Company ( http://www.archive.org/details/tzpdc ). Treetrunk Records has now begun exploring the "Constant" theme.

Being a relatively Mystified virgin (can you blame me with his enormous amount of releases), I have to rate this as Thomas' best work to date! The atmosphere kills me everytime! Highly recommended droneload.
